Stray cat rescued

I just talked to Luba on the phone,her computer is down,that's why she has not been here.
She had tricked the stray cat she was feeding,inside to her basement and that's where he will stay until it gets warmer.
He apparently licked his paws and the got stuck to Lubas concrete steps outside,it was -17C this morning,no cat should be out in that cold,so I am glad she has him inside.
She is full of questions though,never had a cat before and probably cannot keep this one,she just want him to be warm and fed for now.
Her mom is terrified of cats,otherwise that poor kitty would have a home with them.
She's hoping to be back soon:cat:

But, chico, you aren't afraid of cats! Who knows, maybe Luba's mom will take to the kitty. I had a cousin who was terrified of cats - she had been attacked by a feral cat years before (I remember - it wasn't pretty) - so I was very surprised to find out nearly 25 years down the road that she had adopted 5 cats.

No,I am not afraid of cats,although I had about 4 frenzied attacks by Rocky over 12yrs,resulting in lenghty treatments,ER visits etc...there always is an explanation,as to why animals do the things they do..
Luba was extatic this morning,the kitty went in THE BOX:thumbs up

I am so glad Luba caught the kitty! I guess she knows for sure he is a male now.:o Too bad her mom is afraid of cats. It sounds like she has developed a bond with this fellow.

It is too cold outside for all animals. I locked the kitty door on the catuary the other day too. Let me tell you, I have some ticked off kitties but they are warm and that is what matters!
And too funny that the investigation would have gone underway again if she was missing for too long. :thumbs up

With today's crappy weather am very happy Luba got than kitty inside. Not sure what it is like in Oakville, but we live in East York which I think is pretty close to Luba's house so it must be snowing hard there to.

I got this e-mail from Luba,apparently her e-mail works,but nothing else.
I have her permission to copy and paste,now lets see if I can do it:laughing:


I just heard from the lady with Toronto Cat Rescue who took my little abandoned boy to the vet this afternoon.

He's not well, he's fighting off some type of infection. He has terrible teeth, they may need to extract several. He has three canines left and one has already fallen out on it's own. Vet said his mouth and colouring does not look healthy, lots of infection. His body is full of sores and fleas as well as many horrible mats. He'll probably need to be shaved if they can't cut them out. He's in pain as well and has definitely been having a rough go of life. Rescue estimated he might be about 6yrs old but they're not sure. He'll be on antibiotics for atleast 2 weeks if not longer until dental infection has subsided. He'll then be sedated and the bad teeth extracted as well as neutering. They treated him immediately for fleas today.

So he's home with the foster mom from rescue who has some other strays with her right now and he's in a large dog cage able to see them, watch TV and sit near a fireplace. He's warm, in out of the cold and he has a fighting chance to survive now. Thank God, that I got him in the house when I did.

I've been calling him 'BABE' but told them they can call him 'MASON' as TCR has 4 other 'babe's on their system at that vet. Mason sounds good and it's the street next to mine where he often goes.

Okey dokey, bye byesies. I hope I can get on the internet soon. You can if you want, cut and paste this email into the thread to update it if you like.

God bless, stay safe through this storm

Awwwww poor Mason. :sad: But he does have a fighting chance now that he is in rescue. It's so good of Luba to care enough to catch him and get him there. Send her a big hug for me please.
And Mason needs lots of :grouphug: and :goodvibes: from all of us. He's a fighter. Let's hope he can fight all of the infections.

February 13th, 2008, 09:12 AM

I am sure Mason is now in no more danger and will be fine:thumbs up

February 13th, 2008, 01:44 PM
Oh, lucky Mason! Luba is an :angel:. Can you imagine if he'd had to stay out there? In such tough shape I doubt he'd have lasted much longer. :sad:

But he's safe now! :highfive: Good job, Luba!

Tell her she's missed, chico. I hope she gets her computer back on line soon!

February 13th, 2008, 06:20 PM
Moderator / s would you rename the title of this thread please to 'rescued cat in scarborough' or something like that. Or you can merge it with the one I previously made called 'looking for trap'. Thanks :thumbs up

Hello Everybody and thanks Anita on posting the updates you're a sweetie, I think I'll keep you. :cloud9:

(Computer is another story, I can only stay on for a min or two before it starts freezing and all the pop ups won't close so I'll make it fast,must be some nasty spyware hoping brother will fix SOON...if he hears this :laughing:)

Okay Mason update:

He was not eating today nor last night. Foster mom may have to puree and force feed him. Glad she knows how to do all that with cats. Toronto Cat Rescue has been absolutely WONDERFUl and if anyone from there reads this Thank you Thank you Thank you. There is no doubt in my mind that had he not trusted me enough to come into the house he would have died outside being this sick. He's in a lot of pain, vet says his colouring is all wrong.

Yesterday he was not looking well I had a feeling he really needed to get to the vets asap, but how to get him into the crate which my lovely neighbour loaned me (Thank you Nancy). So bravely and begging I asked my mom to help me. I gloved her coated her and booted her :laughing: then got some big heavy blankets. He was already cornered under chairs so I had to blanket the area like heavy drapes hoping he wouldn't climb up them but to be honest he was too sick to do that. :sick: He didn't make a peep, I kept talking to him like I normally do put the crate infront of him with blankets around and he had nowhere to go. I then used another blanket to lay by his bum and sort of let it rest heavy on him and pulled him toward the crate. He walked in very slowly and very scared but really really sick. It was a snow storm, a lovely lady from TCR was coming all the way from the other side of teh city to pick him up because she had other appts with the vet for another cat and it was perfect timing. To save time and get him there faster we met half way, transfered him to her car (I cried of course) and he was taken off to the vet.

If anyone is looking for a great place to donate anything to cat wise, these are wonderful folks. Mason's vet bill is going to be a pretty penny. Otherwise any food, blankets, litter, even Canadian Tire Money.

I'll keep you posted with any updates on Mason. If I can't get on here I would LOVE for Anita (chico) to post them through email. That seems to work okay most of the time. It's only when I open my browser do I get slammed and freeze up.

Some pictures of MASON
This close up shows the difference in colouring in his mouth and his sore right eye, also you can see where the missing tooth is, they will have to extract the root and some of the others. He is in a lot of pain and Metacam will help that along with the antibiotics.

February 13th, 2008, 06:27 PM
Mason wants to thank you all for your Prayers and well wishes for him to get better. Oh and I also wanted to say thanks to my mom who let me bring him in the house despite her fears and who helped hold heavy blankets up and help me get him in the crate and drove me and Mason in the middle of a snowstorm across the city so he could get to the vets. THANKS MOM!! I LOVE YOU.

The last picture is of him being driven off on an urgent run to the vet.
THANKS TCR~~

Thanks for going to bat for him, Luba! :grouphug: And welcome back (for short stays till your brother powercleans your hard drive :D)

Luba
February 13th, 2008, 09:27 PM
I'll be swinging my bat for him as long as I can :D

The foster mom is going to evaluate and see if he is adoptable. Either way I'll be informed and assisting and he'll probably be back at my house in my basement all cozy watching TV while he recovers fully 'after' the neutering. We just have to get him well enough for all that first.

(powerclean this thing with a hammer I'm so mad I can't stay on line. I wish I could fix it myself but I dont know how)

Welcome back Luba. Great work with Mason. I love that name. :cloud9:
I am praying for him to make a quick, complete recovery. He is a sweetie.

Just a thought...... if you can download anything these are 2 programs I use. My son in law approves of them. He is an IT guy with lots of education and a great career now. The first is AVG free edition anti virus. It will quarantine any viruses you may have. Sounds like you may have one or two. The second is a spyware program that helps pinpoint problems. Maybe they can help.

Luba,happy to see you made it back:thumbs up
The last few pics of Mason look sooo so pityful,poor little guy :cry:but then you came along:angel2:
Maybe he won't eat because he misses your gourmet meals:cat:
It could be the meds,although they are keeping him painfree,that causes him to lose his appetite.
I :pray:it improves.
I am always sooo impressed with wonderful Rescues who give it all to rescue a little cat when there are thousands out there,many other places would just have put him down as a lost cause.
It seems to me you have become attached to little Mason:fingerscrfor a good outcome.
You know,you'd be a great fostermom for kitties needing love and care,maybe your mom would get over her fear and you'd learn a little more about these wonderful little lives.

Luba
February 16th, 2008, 08:49 PM
Well Mason ate on his own today , first time in a few days he wasn't needing to be force fed.

He is receiving fluids subcutaneously from the volunteer angel with Toronto Cat Rescue. They are going to feature his story on their website and it should be up soon. The volunteer has a few other sick kitties she is caring for and it working non stop at trying to get them well enough so they can go into foster homes / their forever home. Mason will need extensive surgery then recovery before any of that is possible.

www.torontocatrescue.ca

:pray: for him to make it through this. Thank you for all of your prayers for this little guy. He's had a rough rough time. If anyone with a quiet caring home would be interested in adopting him, visit TCR website above, or if you'd like to help make him well you can do the same. Thank you so much everyone.

Whatever happens to Mason,:pray:he will pull through,without you,he might have died a painful death outside.
Now,he's warm,fed and his pain taken care of,it must make you feel better.
I know you are not up on cats,so I welcome you to the world of cats,so very often dumped and missunderstood,these little guys who only want to purr for you and be loved:cat:

I know! I missed it too.

Sweet little Mason (although he looks pretty rounded at the "corners" so little may not be the best word as far as size, but as far as being a poor kitty, little is right!)

Such a beautiful cat too, how could someone dump him? Or maybe he ran away, or got lost? Even cats do get lost sometimes.

I agree Chico2, people tend to think that cats can fend for themselves, that dumping them is not as bad as dumping a dog, because cats hunt. Sure they do, but they need something to hunt in order to have a slight chance at catching it, and I think I read or heard once that for every one kill they miss 10-15 times! That's a lot of energy lost for one little mouse/bird caught and eaten!

And ... me, I'm addicted to purr-therapy!

Thank you Marko for allowing me to post this information you are an angel, thank you so much :cloud9:


MASON's story will be featured on TCR's website within the next couple of days. So if you want to save their site www.torontocatrescue.ca in your fav's you can go to it say Tues/Wed and his story will be there.

He's off the Metacam now for pain, they are being very careful with his liver metabolizing it. He's very scared and only comes out of the corner of his cage to stretch a little, but he's lifting his head up a little higher sometimes. Life is happening around him, other cats and people, and he does use his litter box. He seems to only eat at night, a habit he got into while roaming outside. I commonly would start watching for him in the afternoon and then all through the evening and night.

Mason was always picked on by the other cats. The cat nurse (I'll call her) that is caring for him right now thinks he was separated from his mother and litter mates from a very young age and hasn't a clue how to interact. She doesn't feel he's ever had a 'home' so he's probably feral. If he did have a home it was probably so long ago and for such a brief period of time he wouldn't even remember.

I've never heard of this rescue,a kitty-haven,do they get any funds from anywhere other than donations?

Hi Anita, I think you'd make a purrrfect foster mommie :D


It's all donation based fundraising events.
http://www.torontocatrescue.ca/store/images/clipart/ink2_sm.gif

They have a newsletter section on their site here:

http://www.torontocatrescue.ca/store/event.asp

What We Do

We ensure that each cat rescued by TCR is treated for medical needs, spayed and neutered, and receives a rabies vaccination at the appropriate age.

We do not have a shelter. Cats are housed in one of our foster homes to await their adoption, which is why foster homes are such an important part of TCR’s program. Each foster home space that we have available represents one more cat that we can assist. All of our volunteers are important, but without foster homes and adoptions, we couldn’t do our work.



As an all-volunteer private organization, Toronto Cat Rescue needs donations of every kind, from pet food and other cat supplies to the cash required to pay veterinary bills and even Canadian Tire money. All donations go directly to the care of rescued cats. Pre-arranged monthly donations or one-time donations are greatly appreciated.

No my dear there is something really crazy going on with the computer. IT was spyware bot that asked for me to pay.

Is there a good one that I can trust to use and it's free that someone else can recommend and trusts? I'm scared to d/l anything else unless it's got a good rcommendation.

My computer is so slow and freezing and I keep getting booted off the net along with being redirected and my broswer closing on it's own all the time.

WHen I try to post som,times takes me 4/5 tries.



Mason has a special personality about him, he's scared but I hope I can take that all away from him and hope he can trust us humans again. He really deserves a nice friendly quiet home...so if anyone will love him that much....he will repay you over and over I know it!:pray:

I've done a bit of volunteering with Pride Rescue of Hamilton, and Elmira Cat Rescue (all part of the 'rescue network'...I know they cooperate/work with rescues in the TO area), and they're great folks. Toronto Cat Rescue sounds wonderful, too.

I took in a young cat once,who kept showing up here for food,but only for a few hours until HS came,I kept him in the rec-room downstairs and Rocky howled the whole time,since the kitten was very vocal.

Glad to hear Mason is doing better. I still check every day for updates on him. I :pray: he will get adopted soon into a forever home.

Luba, these sites I originally gave you are both free. I have far too much Scottish heritage to ever pay for something I can get for free. :D The first one is AVG. There is one you have to pay for but there is also the free one which is the one I use. Have never had a problem with it.
The spybot I have I have never had to pay for. It runs in the background and
alerts you to anything that is trying to download. It is called Spybot Search and Destroy. Both of these are excellent programs. I will post the links again.

From sounds of things the best bet for you would be to have someone come in and clean your machine for you. Or take the tower somewhere to get it fixed. In most cases if they are going to have to take some time to fix it they will give you a loaner tower you can use.

Yes thank you so much :D That's the one I d/l and it did search and then told me I had some huge number of 501 items that were in need of removal. But then in order to remove them I had to register...so then I registered and gave my email and it told me I have to pay. Seriously, not kidding I did this step 3times as I thought I was doing something wrong.
I may be missing something ??

I think I need to get trend micro updated and also get a good spyware program. Thats gonna be a bit $$ but I guess its eithe rthat or pay a tech person to do it. Oh well. I just pray it doesn't crash completely.

I think I need to get trend micro updated and also get a good spyware program. Thats gonna be a bit $$ but I guess its eithe rthat or pay a tech person to do it. Oh well. I just pray it doesn't crash completely.

Trend Micro has a good spyware program :D

yuppers i may suck up the $ and get trend micro new edition. it may be cheaper then a computer tech repair :sick:

No call from foster mama nurse about Mason so I am assuming he's okay. I may try to call her tonight and see how he's doing. His story should be on the TCR site really soon.

His 'look a like' was around last night. I think they may have either been litter mates or this one is his offspring. They are nearly identical and he came to eat at my feeding station last night. I called out and talked to him but he ran and hid so I kept saying nice thigns to him (lol) in a happy voice then put out more food. He came back and ate then took off and another black cat came and ate the rest. :laughing:

TCR wants me to try to catch this look a like as well. I need to find him a name. He beats Mason up and puts the runs to him a lot. I don't have a picture of him but what are we gonna call him? I've just been referring to him as look a like.

His look a like brother/son came to eat last night. He's more bolt and run when he see's me. I sometimes just stand and watch him eat through the door but if he looks up and sees me there he runs.

I had to keep heating the food up every 1/2 hour last night it's so cold. Then another cat I've not seen before showed up a humungous black and white one with some discolouraton of pigment on his face/nose. I hope it wasn't frost bite.

I decided to call his look a like 'Kingston' :D

Word travels fast when someone is putting out good food and lovin! I know that's how is was in my old neighbourhood, as soon as I started feeding one, suddenly 10 more came out of the woodwork! You're such an :angel2: for caring for them... I'll have them all in my :pray: that they find warm spots to sleep and keep enjoying your food! :grouphug:

Luba,the thought that any cat is out there in this miserable cold,just breaks your heart.
My cats go out for about 5 min that's it...
Beeing hungry on top of that makes it even worse,so thank you for feeding them and hoprfully they have all found a spot out of the cold and wind somewhere,it's just so darn sad:sad:
All because people don't give a:censored::yell:

You guys are just awesome for caring and helping.
Melinda thank you so much for the donation for Mason. TCR can take anything they can get their hands on. Every tiny bit helps!

I do put good food out for them especially when I see them. I put out warm water and warm milk ( I know but hey they need to keep warm), and also sardines, salmon and chicken, wet and dry cat food. I just have to keep warming it up on defrost ALL the time.

Problem is they all come at NIGHT so I'm up by the door all night waiting for them. I would put a shelter for them to go into and stay but I bet they wouldn't use it and if they don't I know the raccoons would. And I don't want raccoons nesting in my yard. I feed them nuts and dog kibble but I don't want them nesting here, too dangerous for health reasons and destructive.

:angel: Luba! I am sure Mason is thanking you! My internet has been acting up for the last couple of weeks. I will have to wait till it behaves to go look at his profile but thanks for posting it. Hopefully he will find a forever home quickly. He is a sweetheart. :cloud9: And I wish I could donate something but with my gang it just isn't possible at the moment. :sad: Super 7 win please!
